Why don't you show me where I said I was an expert on this, anywhere in the thread. I said I was familiar with commercial building management - not every detail of how and why they're built. I wouldn't have asked if I knew the answer. A number of folks filled in the blanks for me, and I appreciate their doing so.

Since you can't RFC, I will summarize: I asked a very specific question about commercial building construction. Some people RFC and answered very well; summary: flexibility. Got it.

Others took it as a naive question and explained in random ways that sometimes people want to build two buildings. They were polite about it. So was I, even though I didn't need to be told about height limits and serialized construction and so forth - that wasn't my question.


Then you come along, basically weeks later, and ignoring the entire content of the thread and apparently reading only the subject line, mansplain the hell out of the wrong question, and continue by insulting me in repeated posts. Classy, dude. Just classy.

Some cities cap the number of floors or height of the structure. This may be to harmonize the city skyline not block the view of the mountains or block the views from other luxury condos already built.

A 20 story building is a much more difficult target for a passenger jet.

It takes some serious mental gymnastics to post a rather basic question on a forum, then to classify a detailed answer as 'mansplaining,' whatever the hell that means. Heck, I didn't even realize you were a woman. I just thought you were some callow, self-appointed economic guru. Oh, sorry. Economic warrior. As far as ignoring the entire content of the thread is concerned, I really didn't have time to read page after page of answers. You asked a question, I answered the question.

Hey, you're the one who shot back a retort that you understand commercial real estate. No, you don't. Look, I realize that you have this brand in the forum you're trying to prop up, but don't post questions that are something out of Commercial Real Estate 101, then claim to understand commercial real estate. And then yap on about how the answers you get are Mansplaining. It's okay to not know all the answers.
